Sentinel seeking child health care questions

LEWISTOWN — The Sentinel is seeking local residents who have questions about their child’s health care for a new health column slated to appear periodically in The Sentinel.

The column will be written by Dr. Joseph Romeo, a pediatrician with Geisinger, and will seek to answer questions related to children’s health care.

Those asking questions need not be patients of Dr. Romeo or Geisinger to participate. Questions should be as brief as possible while still including pertinent information such as the child’s age and sex, any medical conditions, symptoms, medications and dosage. No one asking a question will be identified fully by name and any names of children included will be changed to protect confidentiality. Not all questions that are sent may be used in the column.

Send questions one of the following ways: via email to bcox@lewistownsentinel.com; via U.S. mail to “Dr. Romeo column” The Sentinel 352 Sixth St., Lewistown, PA 17044 or drop off at The Sentinel office at the corner of Sixth Street and Summit Drive in the Pleasant Acres section of Lewistown.
